All three of the classes have been taking part in contact rugby training for the past number of Wednesday’s with Connacht Rugby Youth Development Officer, Charlie Cooper. All three teams did really well, winning some matches, scoring lots of tries and making some crunching tackles! Well done to all the players involved!!

Active Week – Day 2

Everyone enjoyed Day 2 of Active Week in Cornafulla today. Sandra and Dave came to our school. These two instructors work for Rinka in Monksland, Athlone. They worked with the three Infant classes and Ms Dunne’s 1st Class today. Sandra and Dave did fun activities with the children. They set up an obstacle course for them and did some Gymnastics with them. Sandra and Dave played a very funny game called Sheep Tag with the children. They all absolutely loved this game! The older classes will get to do Rinka on Thursday.

All of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Class pupils had a Soccer Blitz in the afternoon.

Mrs Fitzgerald came into some of the classes to talk about healthy eating in the morning and in the afternoon. She gave booklets to the children and talked to them about the importance of bringing healthy lunches to school. Mrs Fitzgerald was delighted to hear that the children in Cornafulla are very good for drinking water and milk at school. In the afternoon, Mrs Fitzgerald invited some of the classes out to the courtyard. These children got to taste strawberries, oranges, peaches, peas, pineapple, etc. She bought all of the fruit in Lidl. Thanks to Mrs Fitzgerald, Ms O’Brien, Ms Madden, Ms Lennon, Ms Glynn and Ms Browne for preparing all the fruit for us!

We are very proud of these Senior Infant boys. They were presented with medals at St Joseph’s pitch in Cushla last night. They have been going to soccer training there at 6 O’ Clock every Monday evening for the last few months. They played matches against other teams. They are now finished for the season.

Sports Day 2017

We took full advantage of the sun last Monday and had our Sports Day.  It was a  fabulous day and we all really enjoyed it!  Thank you Mrs O’Connell for organizing the day. “It was amazing!”

We took part in novelty races, penalty shoot outs and  hockey. We enjoyed playground games, were creative with construction blocks,  ran through obstacle courses, jumped on bouncy castles and hopped around on space hoppers. The inflatable dragons  were a great hit as we raced each other through the bouncy obstacle courses.  6th Class took on the teachers in a game of soccer and this year after a very tough match the teachers were victorious well done to all!

We also  cooled down with some treats, drinks and ice-creams in the shop ran by our parents association. Thank you to the ladies – it was a real treat!

Have a look at some of our pictures from the day…

Tag Rugby Blitz

Published by under Active school flag

Today, the children in 1st and 2nd class took part in a Tag Rugby Blitz in Buccaneers Rugby club. Cornafulla N.S. had four teams participating and each team played against different schools from Athlone. It’s safe to say all that training on a Wednesday was well worth it, as each team scored a number of tries. It was a great day out for all and we might even have a few professional rugby players in the near future!!!
